What is was is Lego created this new color they could use for figures, and while some people liked it there was opposition after all who wants to change there entire supply of figs after collecting for 20 something years, so rather then do a full switch with every theme and every set. Lego decided that form now on (insert date ) all licensed sets will be flesh while all the "core" sets would be classic yellow. Sort of half and half fix to the mess they created. The fig god has spoken. :wink: :guinness:

And the first few years of harry potter which I have a few sets of.


Nope, only the first two years had yellow figs, and if my memory is correct they both had old greys. I don't think there many licensed sets made in that period in between shifts, and I know for a fact the third year of HP was fully shifted.

Well as a base you have to take elements B,I,z with about half as much of the compound BS and it does not hurt to add a little of the stupidity to the formula to help keep everything nice and stable either. What happins when you add all these ingredients together is you get an overly snobby Cadian with more English skills then Lego now how. She's very funny to listen to and some of her posts are genuinely worth a good laugh but don't bother when it comes to to her Lego knowledge its all just a bad joke. However there is the added plus of that English skill resulting in a near flawless joke presentation.

I like this because it makes megablok license sound like a disease.

No, I'm pretty sure I was 100% correct and you didn't even check the link I presented. That would be, a link to peeron.com with a list of parts that includes both a yellow Luke head and other parts in this colour Peeron calls "DkStone", aka, BLEY. Gee, how did I know this set exists with these colours!? Would you llok at that! I OWN it. Dumbass.

So you called me stupid, snobby, and "worth a good laugh", and called my LEGO knowledge "a bad joke". However, the information I presented was, in fact, true, making your post both incredibly unnecessary and incredibly wrong. Good day.

EDIT: The post you tried to affirm, j+b, was actually a reply to DarthBrik. aoffan said there weren't MANY sets made between the shifts, with an obvious example being the one I linked to. aoffan and DarthBrik were discussing the Harry Potter sets, not the Star Wars ones to which I referred.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Is everyone so blind that they're missing the obvious? Or is there perception filter on the picture? why is he on a camel? Pirates of the Caribbean isn't set anywhere near the dessert? OK there may be camels in the new movie but I doubt it. also why have they not used the normal plastic for the hair? I doubt LEGO has took up the licence.

Seven out of Ten pirates said they preferred camels...

because, if you could zoom out of this picture, you would see that this is in a PoP set diorama. He is on a camel so that he will blend in and not be noticed unless someone is looking really hard. TLC puts Astarte eggs like this in all the time, it's kindof their thing.
